Seemingly out of nowhere, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana has made a name for himself in the 2020 Democrat presidential race.

Does Pete Buttigieg stand a chance against Bernie Sanders or anyone else? Probably not, at the end of the day.

However, Pete has a big secret Democrats might just really, really love.

From Washington Examiner:

The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who spoke fondly of the Communist Manifesto and dedicated a significant portion of his academic career to the work of Italian Communist Party founder Antonio Gramsci, an associate of Vladimir Lenin.

Joseph Buttigieg, who died in January at the age of 71, immigrated to the U.S. in the 1970s from Malta and in 1980 joined the University of Notre Dame faculty, where he taught modern European literature and literary theory. He supported an updated version of Marxism that jettisoned some of Marx and Engel’s more doctrinaire theories, though he was undoubtedly Marxist.

He was an adviser to Rethinking Marxism, an academic journal that published articles “that seek to discuss, elaborate, and/or extend Marxian theory,” and a member of the editorial collective of Boundary 2, a journal of postmodern theory, literature, and culture. He spoke at many Rethinking Marxism conferences and other gatherings of prominent Marxists.

Ain’t that something?

Check out Pete’s thoughts on the Electoral College. He’s not a fan…

President Trump’s 2020 campaign slogan is “Keep America Great.”

Based on who Democrats have as contenders, it would seem as though 45 will have no problem keeping America great.

And yet, at least one candidate thinks it wise to run on the GOP side.

His name is Bill Weld, former governor of Massachusetts and 2016 Libertarian vice presidential candidate.

In other words, Weld is a liberal.

WATCH:

In 2016, Weld called for gun control:

How will Trump perform against the Democrat nominee come 2020? He will win.

Trump versus Joe Biden? Win.

Trump versus Bernie Sanders? Win.

Trump versus Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, Joaquin Castro, Cory Booker, Jay Inslee. etc.?

Win, win, win, win, win.

This comes from financial experts, who say there’s no chance Trump loses to the liberal standard-bearer – whomever that winds up being.

Why? Simple, really.

It’s the economy, stupid.

From Daily Wire:

According to some financial experts, President Trump should easily win the 2020 election because of one factor: the strength of the economy.

The experts quoted by Politico said that if history is a reliable guide, the fact that the economy has flourished during Trump’s tenure should be the overriding element in voter’s decision as to whom to vote for in 2020. The economy is sailing along on rising wages and low gas prices, as well as low unemployment. Donald Luskin, chief investment officer of TrendMacrolytics, which predicted Trump’s 2016 victory, opined, “The economy is just so damn strong right now and by all historic precedent the incumbent should run away with it.” He was sanguine about any problems with the economy that might arise between now and November 2020, adding, “It would have to slow a lot to still be not pretty good.”

Poll: Majority of Americans Think Corporations have Gotten Too Political

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that American corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff.

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that U.S. corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff. We have witnessed a growing number of corporations going woke since Georgia passed its new election integrity law. These corporations are pushing a hardcore, left-wing line of lies against the Georgia and have made all sorts of false claims about the new law. But a recent poll by the Daily Wire finds that a majority of Americans are already sick and tired of the left-wing posturing of these corporations. The Daily Wire poll found that 64 percent of those surveyed are less likely to support these big-mouthed corporations. The poll also found that most Americans did not support the decision by Major League Baseball to pull its All-Star Game from Atlanta. https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845164169101313 https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845165897121792 So, why are these corporations doing all this despite the fact that they are pissing off half of America? Well, there are two reasons. First is cowardice. Instead of standing for American free speech and respecting the rights of the states to run their own lives, these corporations are siding with the anti-American left and are engaging in economic terrorism against us. They are doing this not out of principle, though. They are doing it to prevent people from suing them. After all, leftists sue everybody at the drop of a hat. Conservatives almost never do. That means these corporations are guessing that they can escape legal problems by mollifying the left despite angering the right. The second reason is business. These big corporations imagine that if they follow the left, it will help lead to the destruction of their smaller competitors and they will be the last men standing. They also imagine that they can control government through their big…

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…
